In casting moves that ought to be familiar for readers of the graphic novels, The Walking Dead will add a trio of new characters on season two. All will be related to the survivors' arrival at Hershel’s Farm and are described by AMC as follows: Hershel: A older veterinarian. Maggie: Hershel's daughter, Maggie, possesses made horseback-riding ability. Otis: Middle-aged ranch foreman with a sensitive side.

As The Walking Dead's short but highly celebrated first season comes to a close, series star Andrew Lincoln still can't quite wrap his head around the massive success of the AMC zombie drama. "I don't think any of us expected this. In our best-possible-case scenarios, this isn't even close," the British actor tells us with a laugh. "It feels really unprecedented because the response has been so positive and affectionate. It's amazing. When you make something, you just hope that people will get why you wanted to do it or what you got from the script.

Corpse disposal was much on the minds of the Walking Dead characters in last night’s episode, “Wildfire,” following the campfire massacre of the preceding week. The show’s simple, but contentious, conundrum? What to do with the bodies of loved ones that could turn into zombies who love the taste of bodies? The answers were varied. While Andrea took a heartbroken age to shoot Amy, Norman Reedus’ Daryl wasted no time pickaxeing in the head any corpse that moved, or at least looked like it might do so. Meanwhile, poor Jim was left to zombie-ficate by the side of the road as the rest of the diminished band of survivors headed off to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (which, as I’ve noted elsewhere, really seems to have been sleeping on the job with regard to both control and prevention. I will be extremely disappointed if Noah Emmerich’s CDC scientist gets a bonus this Christmas). To Read More Click Here.
